  • Kemba Walker (knee) unlikely to play Saturday
    Coach Brad Stevens said that Kemba Walker (knee) did not practice on Friday and is unlikely to play Saturday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Unfortunately, it looks like Kemba will miss his fifth consecutive contest on Saturday. However, the good news is that Stevens said Walker "will ramp up over the weekend with next week as target return." This is similar to Danny Ainge's comments on Thursday when Ainge said he's "confident" Walker's left knee is "fine," and he expects him to return to the court at "some point in the near future." Marcus Smart and Brad Wanamaker will continue to soak up extra minutes as long as Kemba is sidelined, and Jayson Tatum will serve as the focal point of the Boston offense. Today, 11:09 am
  • Robert Williams (hip) cleared to return
    Robert Williams (left hip bone edema) has been cleared to return to game action.

    Advice: Williams was expected to get a final scan on his hip on Thursday to make sure there’s been no setback. It would seem that the test came back clean, and it appears it was the final hurdle Rob Will needed to clear. Still, he should be left on waivers for now, as he will be eased back into the rotation via limited minutes off the bench. Even when fully healthy, Williams will have a tough time carving out fantasy value behind Enes Kanter and Daniel Theis, who has been playing very well of late. Today, 11:07 am
  • De'Aaron Fox (abdominal) questionable Friday
    De'Aaron Fox (lower abdominal tightness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Fox was a late scratch for Thursday's game due to the ab issue but did tell reporters afterward that he thought he would be cleared to play Friday night. "We had another doctor look at it, and he didn't think it would get worse by playing," Fox said. Cory Joseph got the start at PG on Thursday and tallied six points, two rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and one turnover in 35 minutes. CoJo will likely get another start this evening if Fox is once again ruled out. Today, 10:55 am
  • Eric Gordon (knee) questionable Saturday
    Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Gordon sat out Wednesday night's victory over Memphis due to the nagging knee issue, although Mike D'Antoni told reporters on Tuesday that he was expecting Gordon to be active. Yet, the Rockets are rolling right now, having won five straight games; thus, they may err on the side of caution in hopes of having EG as close to 100% as possible by the start of the postseason. If he is unable to play Saturday, Ben McLemore and Austin Rivers will divvy up extra minutes. Today, 10:35 am
  • Danilo Gallinari (rest) ruled out Friday
    Danilo Gallinari (left ankle soreness) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Gallinari logged 34 minutes in Thursday's victory over the Kings, which is the first time he's played more than 33 minutes in a game since Jan 20th; thus, it's not overly surprising to see him rested on the second night of a back-to-back. Especially considering he's sat out the back end of each OKC's last four B2B's. Gallo did miss four consecutive contests due to left ankle soreness in late December, but let's hope this is merely a precautionary measure. Mike Muscala, Terrance Ferguson and Hamidou Diallo are expected to soak up extra playing time with Gallo sidelined. Today, 10:33 am
  • Damian Jones (ill) available to play Friday
    Damian Jones (illness) will be available to play Friday vs. Brooklyn.

    Advice: Jones was initially listed as questionable on the injury report released Thursday evening, but he has been upgraded all the way to available and will be ready to roll Friday night. With both Dewayne Dedmon and Clint Capela sidelined, Jones has limited competition for playing time, but still logged just eight minutes off the bench on Wednesday. Today, 10:26 am
  • Kevin Huerter (adductor) available Friday
    Kevin Huerter (left adductor pain) has been upgraded from "probable" to "available" for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Coach Lloyd Pierce told reporters that Huerter was dealing with a groin injury on Thursday, so there was some concern he might miss some time. However, the minor injury won't cost the young wing even a single contest. Today, 10:22 am
  • Jusuf Nurkic (leg) still without a timetable
    Jusuf Nurkic (leg, calf) is still without a timetable or a target date for his return.

    Advice: Nurkic returned to his first full-contact practice back on Jan. 22, but strained his right calf in the process. Speaking with the media for the first time in over a month on Thursday, Nurk did not sound optimistic. "It's hard to give hope because there is no dates (for my return), so it's hard to talk about anything," Nurkic said. "I have no dates, so all the rumors, they don't make sense. People are going to say (he's coming back) today, tomorrow, next week, a week later … but I have no dates." With just 22 games left this season, it's hard to envision him building up any fantasy value. Today, 9:11 am
  • Trae Young (illness) available to play Friday
    Trae Young (illness) is available for Friday's game vs. Brooklyn.

    Advice: Young was unable to practice Thursday and was listed as questionable on the injury report, but he is good to go this evening. Trae was also questionable leading up to Wednesday's matchup with the Magic but ended up playing through the illness and tallied 37 points, 11 assists, and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes. Make sure he's locked and loaded in your starting lineup. Today, 8:59 am
  • Robert Williams (hip) may return this weekend
    Danny Ainge said Robert Williams (hip) remains on track to return to action as early as this weekend, or shortly thereafter.

    Advice: Williams has been sidelined since December 6th due to the hip injury but has made substantial progress of late. He is expected to get a final scan on his hip to make sure there’s been no setback. If that is clear, it's possible he could play Saturday vs. the Rockets or Tuesday vs. the Nets. Today, 8:11 am
  • Kyle Korver (back) ruled out Friday
    Kyle Korver (back soreness) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: This will be the sixth straight game on the shelf for Korver due to the back issue. Expect Pat Connaughton and Donte DiVincenzo to continue logging some extra playing time. Today, 7:03 am
  • Ky Bowman (ankle) to miss 'extended time'
    Steve Kerr said that Ky Bowman rolled his ankle "pretty bad" and will be out "extended time."

    Advice: Bowman injured the ankle late in the fourth quarter of Thursday's game vs. the Lakers. He won't make the trip to Phoenix for Saturday's game vs. the Suns and is expected to get an MRI on Friday. It sounds like we are looking at a multi-game absence. With Stephen Curry likely to return to action on Sunday, Bowan's fantasy value was headed in the wrong direction even before the ankle issue. He can be sent to the waiver wire in lieu of a more promising player. Today, 6:07 am
  • Anthony Davis scores 23 points in 25 minutes
    Anthony Davis (left elbow) needed just 25 minutes to score 23 points against the Warriors during an easy 116-86 win on Thursday, adding six rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: The Lakers ran away with this one with a 40-point third quarter to get this game to garbage time. LeBron James (groin) didn't play in this one, so AD smashing in limited playing time wasn't a surprise with his per-36 line of 33/10/3 sans LeBron this season. He'll be listed as probable for basically every game, but Davis is obviously healthy enough to dominate on the stat sheet. Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Alex Caruso scoreless in 15 minutes
    Alex Caruso failed to score with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 15 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

    Advice: He did take a Kevon Looney knee to his thigh in the first half, but he did stay in the game. Caruso has been excellent when he plays next to LeBron James (groin), but his usage didn't change too much with coach Frank Vogel looking to his frontcourt to fill in for LeBron tonight. Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Kyle Kuzma scores 18 in 29 minutes
    Kyle Kuzma scored 18 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

    Advice: He did get to play garbage time to boost his stats in this easy win. Kuzma didn't get to start, but he was extremely busy when he was out there with an 8-of-17 shooting line. LeBron James (groin) doesn't look like he's going to miss much time, so Kuzma's outlook shouldn't change much. He's really just a points specialist unless we hear bad news on 'Bron. Yesterday, 10:10 pm
  • Eric Paschall scores 23 points in 27 minutes
    Eric Paschall scored 23 points with three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Lakers during a blowout 116-86 loss on Thursday.

    Advice: He went off in the second quarter with 13 points, and it certainly helped that Draymond Green was ejected in the first half with Andrew Wiggins (back) also out. Coach Steve Kerr has said he wants to play Paschall at both forward spots, but his usage rate will likely be falling off once Stephen Curry (hand) can return. Draymond is getting close to a suspension and will likely sit in several games going forward, so Paschall should still have some value in 12-team leagues. Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Ky Bowman starts the third, has solid line
    Ky Bowman scored 11 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

    Advice: In the final minutes, he did sprain his ankle and did not return. He started the third quarter for an ejected Draymond Green, which explains the boost to his minutes. Green could sit out Saturday or Sunday, but Bowman's fantasy value will be taking a big hit in the form of Stephen Curry (hand), who figures to return on Sunday. Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • De'Aaron Fox thinks he can play Friday
    De'Aaron Fox (abdomen) said he thinks he can play on Friday against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: "We had another doctor look at it, and he didn’t think it would get worse by playing," Fox said. "While we were here, we had someone else look at it to get another opinion on it." Fox's abdominal injury is related to a back injury from earlier this year, so the Kings may still choose to be careful here. If he can't go, Cory Joseph will get another start while Bogdan Bogdanovic and Buddy Hield would also benefit. Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari scores 24 points vs. Kings
    Danilo Gallinari made 8-of-17 from the field for 24 points with six rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

    Advice: It's another efficient game for Gallo after his 24 points on Tuesday. Coach Billy Donovan has kept Gallo at about 31 minutes per game in 2020, and Gallinari getting assisted 68.4% of the time this season has helped him score 19.2 points per game on a 44/41/90 shooting line on the year. He's been a huge value this season and just needs to stay healthy, as usual. Yesterday, 7:45 pm
  • Anthony Davis (elbow) will play on Thursday
    Anthony Davis (left elbow) will play on Thursday against the Warriors on Thursday.

    Advice: With LeBron James (groin) out, Davis should be in a smash spot even against some Draymond Green defense. Per 36 minutes without LeBron, Davis sits at 32.8 points, 9.8 boards, 3.4 dimes, 1.9 steals, 2.6 blocks and 0.9 treys. Expect a monster evening. Yesterday, 6:17 pm
  • De'Aaron Fox (abdomen) ruled out Thursday
    De'Aaron Fox (right lower abdominal tightness) will not play vs. OKC on Thursday.

    Advice: Fox wasn't ruled out until a few hours prior to tip-off, and the Kings don't seem concerned that it's a long-term issue. He's day-to-day and could return as soon as Friday in Memphis. If he also misses that game, he could target a home game vs. Detroit on Sunday. In his absence, Cory Joseph should start at PG with more ball-handling duties falling to Bogdan Bogdanovic and Buddy Hield. Yesterday, 3:15 pm
  • Damian Jones (illness) questionable vs. Nets
    Damian Jones (illness) is questionable vs. the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: Presumably this is the same illness that's afflicting Trae Young, and both guys are listed as questionable. Dewayne Dedmon and Clint Capela are already out, so if Jones can't suit up we'll see plenty of John Henson at center with Bruno Fernando also soaking up more playing time. Yesterday, 2:28 pm
  • Trae Young (illness) questionable vs. Nets
    Trae Young (illness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. Brooklyn.

    Advice: Young didn't practice on Thursday, so we're unlikely to know more until after shootaround. He was initially 'questionable' for Wednesday's game, before playing and scoring 37 points, so hopefully he'll follow a similar path for this game. Yesterday, 2:24 pm
  • Kevin Huerter (left adductor) probable Friday
    Kevin Huerter (left adductor pain) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Huerter is one of seven Hawks on the injury report, and he's the only one considered probable. Groin and adductor injuries can be tricky, so it's a great sign that he's unlikely to miss time -- it was clearly a minor tweak. Owners should check for confirmation after Atlanta's shootaround. Yesterday, 2:22 pm
  • De'Aaron Fox (abdomen) questionable vs. OKC
    De'Aaron Fox (lower abdominal tightness) is questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Fox played through a sore left shoulder on Tuesday and tweaked his groin in the process, and now he's being listed with abdominal tightness, so he's cleared very banged up at the moment. However, the Kings are currently riding a three-game winning streak and within shouting distance of a postseason spot, so that could give Fox some extra incentive to keep powering through. Check back for another update closer to tip-off. Yesterday, 11:36 am
  • Trae Young (illness) doesn't practice Thurs
    Trae Young (illness) did not participate in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Young played through the illness on Wednesday and wound up dropping in 37 points, so while he'll receive a rest day today, he'll likely be back out there for Friday's game vs. Brooklyn. Owners can expect to get another update following tomorrow's shootaround. Yesterday, 10:41 am
  • Kevin Huerter dealing with a groin injury
    Lloyd Pierce said that Kevin Huerter is dealing with a groin injury.

    Advice: He must have tweaked his groin during Wednesday's game, and it's currently unclear if he'll be available for Friday's matchup with the Nets. If he is forced to the sidelines, Cam Reddish would likely return to the first unit and there would be more minutes available for Jeff Teague, Vince Carter and Treveon Graham. Stay tuned. Yesterday, 10:39 am
  • Ainge expects Walker back in 'near future'
    Danny Ainge said he's "confident" Kemba Walker's left knee is "fine," and he expects him to return to the court at "some point in the near future."

    Advice: Walker has sat out the past four games with a sore left knee, but the Celtics don't play again until Saturday, so maybe he'll be able to get back for that one after having a little more than a week off. We'll get another update by Saturday's shootaround at the latest, but if Walker is able to return for that one, Marcus Smart would head back to the second unit and Brad Wanamaker's minutes would take a hit. Stay tuned. Yesterday, 7:58 am
  • Trae Young's 37 points not enough vs. Magic
    Trae Young (illness) scored 37 points during a 130-120 loss to the Magic on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, 11 assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: He caught fire in the second quarter with 20 points, but the Hawks defense couldn't stop the Magic in this home loss. Young was a game-time call because of an illness, but it obviously didn't affect him. Young is having a monster February with 32.8 points per game, adding 3.5 boards, 9.2 dimes, 1.0 steals and 3.9 treys on a 43/46/92 shooting line. He gets a back-to-back set this coming weekend to put a pretty bow on the month. Wednesday, 7:42 pm
  • Anthony Davis (elbow) probable vs. Warriors
    Anthony Davis (sore left elbow) is probable for Thursday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: The 'probable' tag continues to follow AD this season, though it hasn't prevented him from taking the court almost every night. LeBron James has already been ruled out for this game due to a sore groin, too, so the Lakers will be heavily relying on Davis if he's cleared to play. We should get confirmation after shootaround. Wednesday, 3:35 pm
  • Trae Young (illness) available against Magic
    Trae Young (illness) is available against the Magic on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was just upgraded to probable about an hour ago, and he was a game-time decision. If the illness limits Young's minutes, Brandon Goodwin and Jeff Teague could see a few extra minutes in a tougher matchup. Young could be slightly risky in DFS, but obviously his season-long owners need to get him in their lineups. Wednesday, 3:25 pm
  • Trae Young is probable for Wednesday night
    Trae Young (illness) is probable for Wednesday night against the Magic.

    Advice: That should put him in the starting lineup after getting a questionable tag earlier today. If Trae is limited, Brandon Goodwin could see a few extra minutes, but Young has played through illnesses before and should be fine. Wednesday, 2:34 pm
  • Kemba Walker (knee) ruled out for Wednesday
    Kemba Walker (left knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday against the Jazz.

    Advice: On Tuesday, coach Brad Stevens said that Walker was unlikely to play tonight, and he gets ruled out well before warmups. Marcus Smart will get another start with Brad Wanamaker backing him up while Romeo Langford and Grant Williams could see some spot minutes. Jayson Tatum will have extra chances to stay hot. Wednesday, 12:36 pm
  • Eric Gordon (knee) won't play on Wednesday
    Eric Gordon (right knee contusion) will not suit up for Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Mike D'Antoni said on Tuesday that he was expecting Gordon to be active tonight, so him hitting the sidelines with a knee bruise feels precautionary more than anything else. Russell Westbrook (thumb), who missed Monday's game will be back in action and starting tonight, and Ben McLemore should see an uptick in minutes with Gordon unavailable. For now, we'll be considering EG questionable for Saturday's game in Boston. Wednesday, 10:43 am
  • Trae Young (flu) questionable Wednesday
    Trae Young (flu-like symptoms) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Advice: Young is feeling a bit under the weather and is likely headed for a game-time call tonight, but if he's unable to give it a go, Jeff Teague would be in line for a spot-start and there would be more minutes available for Brandon Goodwin. Stay tuned. Wednesday, 9:05 am
  • De'Aaron Fox vows to play through the pain
    De'Aaron Fox, who is dealing with a sore left shoulder and tweaked his groin on Tuesday, said he intends to continue to play through the pain.

    Advice: "They tell me he’s good to go, I asked him at halftime and he said, ‘play me’," Luke Walton said of Fox. "Between our medical staff and talking to him, I feel confident... We’ll go about it smartly and we’ll give him off days where he needs it and rehab and treatment and all that." Fox has been a bit banged up all year, but he's only missed one game since returning from the ankle issue. The Kings do have a back-to-back set coming up, but it doesn't sound like Fox will be taking any time off in the near future. Wednesday, 8:31 am
  • Anthony Davis scores 21 w/ 14 rebounds
    Anthony Davis scored 21 points with 14 rebounds, three assists, one steal and six blocks in 36 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday.

    Advice: He didn't shoot the ball well, going 6-of-21 from the field, but LeBron James picked up the slack on offense with a 40-point outburst. Only James Harden has been as reliable as AD this season in fantasy as he continues to play through minor ailments. Tonight he picked up yet another issue, as he banged his arm on a dunk attempt and then later on a block. He said after the game that he was "fine," though, but we'd expect the Lakers to list him as probable like they always do. Tuesday, 10:54 pm
  • De'Aaron Fox scores 21 after tweaking groin
    De'Aaron Fox hit 8-of-15 shots, a 3-pointer and just 4-of-9 free throws on his way to 21 points, two rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in Tuesday's win over the Warriors, despite leaving the game briefly after experiencing some tightness in his groin.

    Advice: The fact he was able to play through it leads us to believe the injury is not serious but owners will want to watch for news on Fox in the next couple days. Tuesday, 10:28 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari leads OKC with 24 points
    Danilo Gallinari hit 8-of-16 shots and five 3-pointers for a team-high 24 points, four rebounds, a steal and one turnover in Tuesday's tough win over the Bulls.

    Advice: It was a nice bounce-back game for Gallo, who had scored 12 and 15 points in his previous two games. The Thunder have won four straight games and appear to have a playoff spot locked up, currently sitting as the No. 6 seed. As long as Gallinari can stay healthy, he's going to produce for his fantasy owners. He's been a Top 50 player in nine-cat leagues this season. Tuesday, 8:02 pm
  • Anthony Davis is playing Tuesday
    Anthony Davis (calf) is playing on Tuesday night.

    Advice: He's been listed as probable for most of his games this season and he almost always plays. Tonight is no exception and he should have a field day against the Kings. Tuesday, 7:19 pm
  • Stevens: Kemba (knee) unlikely to play Wed
    Coach Brad Stevens said that it’s a possibility that Kemba Walker (sore left knee) could play Wednesday vs. Utah, but it’s unlikely.

    Advice: Walker has already been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers, and it appears he will miss his fourth straight contest on Wednesday evening. Stevens told reporters that "the team is taking it slowly so that anytime Kemba misses a game from here on out, it's planned and not due to injury." Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown have been the primary beneficiaries in Walker's absence. Tuesday, 10:52 am
  • Eric Gordon (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Coach Mike D'Antoni said Eric Gordon (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Memphis, but expects he will play.

    Advice: Gordon started in place of Russell Westbrook (thumb) on Monday and tallied 16 points (4-of-13 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), two assists, two steals and one three-pointer in 28 minutes before leaving the game due to knee soreness. With Westbrook cleared to return Wednesday, Gordon will be bumped back to the bench if he is healthy enough to play. Tuesday, 10:32 am
  • Gallinari says he hopes to re-sign with OKC
    Danilo Gallinari said he hopes to re-sign with OKC this summer.

    Advice: Gallo will be an unrestricted free agent this summer but said he would like to stay with the Thunder. "I hope so. It's not the time now to talk with the team. But in the summer, it's going to be interesting for me," said Gallinari. "Definitely, it could be a great option for me to stay here." Gallo has been a good fit in OKC and has been a top-50 overall player in nine-cat formats this season. Tuesday, 7:08 am
  • Eric Gordon (knee) scores 16 but leaves early
    Starting in place of the injured Russell Westbrook (thumb), Eric Gordon (knee) finished Monday’s win over the Knicks with 16 points (4-of-13 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), two assists, two steals and one three-pointer in 28 minutes before leaving due to knee soreness.

    Advice: Gordon’s fantasy value comes primarily from his three-point shooting ability, but he didn’t offer much in that area Monday night before departing. He made 1-of-7 3-pointers, with his work at the foul line salvaging what could have been a bad night from a statistical standpoint. Gordon was likely headed back to the bench for Houston’s next game, provided Russell Westbrook (thumb) is healthy enough to play. The good news regarding Gordon’s knee is that Mike D’Antoni said after the game that he’s OK. Monday, 7:45 pm
  • Trae Young scores 28 w/ 10 dimes vs. PHI
    Trae Young racked up 28 points with 10 assists, seven rebounds, two triples and three turnovers in 37 minutes vs. the 76ers on Monday.

    Advice: He spearheaded a comeback attempt in the third quarter when the Hawks outscored Philly 40-22, highlighted by a running floater behind the 3-point line at the buzzer. The Hawks are playing better these days and were coming off two big wins vs. Miami and Dallas before this one, and there's no reason for the Hawks to dial back Trae's minutes since their only focus right now is developing their core. Plus, they will want to get Clint Capela (heel) acclimated once he finally comes back. Young is locked in as a top-10 stud. Monday, 7:05 pm
  • Anthony Davis (calf) probable to play Tuesday
    Anthony Davis (bruised right calf) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Advice: Davis has been listed as probable on multiple occasions this season, and he's usually out on the court come tipoff. His status for Tuesday's matchup with the Pelicans will likely be made official after pregame shootaround. Insert him into your lineups as you normally would. Monday, 5:38 pm
  • Kemba Walker (sore left knee) out again
    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: On Sunday, coach Brad Stevens said Kemba was progressing by the day but refused to put a timetable on his return. Getting ruled out 24 hours in advance probably means more DNPs are on the way too. There aren't any fantasy pickups in Boston, but Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart each get a considerable bump in value. Monday, 5:10 pm
  • Eric Gordon to start Monday vs. New York
    Eric Gordon has replaced Russell Westbrook in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Knicks.

    Advice: Gordon joins James Harden, Danuel House, Robert Covington and P.J. Tucker in the starting lineup for Monday's game. He gives the Rockets another perimeter shooter, and is worth streaming for those in need of 3-pointers. Monday, 4:37 pm
  • Stevens gives an update on Kemba
    Celtics coach Brad Stevens provided an update on Kemba Walker (sore left knee) before Sunday's game.

    Advice: "I think he’s getting better day by day," Stevens said. "He did a lot in the weight room and workout room yesterday and we talked about it a little bit. I don’t know how long it’s going to be but right now we’re really focusing on him feeling great and strengthening it." The Celtics are going to exercise extreme caution here and it does sound like more DNPs could be coming. Romeo Langford has been getting some rotation minutes but not enough to impact fantasy leagues, while Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart will continue to benefit. Monday, 7:16 am
  • Ky Bowman notches 15/7/6/3/1 in defeat
    Ky Bowman got hot in 32 minutes off the bench Sunday, scoring 15 points with seven assists, six rebounds, three steals and one block.

    Advice: Stephen Curry (hand) is still targeting a return on Mar. 1 and the Warriors have been adamant that they intend to play him down the stretch. That's a direct blow to Bowman, especially since he's probably lower in the pecking order than Jordan Poole and Damion Lee. Play him over the next week, by all means, but don't rely on him in March. Sunday, 8:22 pm
  • Kyle Kuzma nets 16 points off the bench
    Kyle Kuzma hit 6-of-13 shots on his way to 16 points, four rebounds, one 3-pointer, one block and two turnovers in 27 minutes off the bench on Sunday.

    Advice: Kuzma snapped a three-game streak of being confined to single figures in the scoring department and helped lead the Lakers second unit today, as they outscored Boston’s reserves 43-11. That was the difference that helped the Lakers earn their 43rd win of the season today, but Kuzma has been very inconsistent this year and his value could take a hit once Markieff Morris officially signs with L.A. and is incorporated into the rotation. Sunday, 4:10 pm
  • Anthony Davis (calf) double-doubles in win
    Anthony Davis (calf) posted a 32-point, 13-rebound double-double during Sunday's 114-112 win over the Celtics, adding three triples, three assists, two blocks and six turnovers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: The bruised right calf didn’t seem to give AD much trouble today, but he’ll likely be listed as "probable" on the injury report with the same issue over the next week or so. Davis has had trouble staying on the floor in the past, but he’s only missed seven games this season, and the majority of the time he’s fought through the pain. With the Lakers being competitive, he has more incentive to fight through the minor injuries that occur over an 82-game season, although it's possible he could miss some random games down the stretch if the Lakers lock up their seeding out West. Sunday, 4:09 pm
  • Eric Paschall starting w/ Draymond Green out
    Eric Paschall will start Sunday's game in place of Draymond Green.

    Advice: Paschall is getting most of his minutes at SF since the trade deadline, but he'll have more PF time coming his way tonight. If you need a cheap streaming play in DFS tonight, give him a look. Sunday, 3:53 pm
  • Eric Gordon (shin) scores 12 points in return
    Eric Gordon (left shin) played 24 minutes off the bench in Saturday’s win over the Jazz, scoring 12 points (5-of-11 FGs) with three rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: Despite Gordon returning to action, Mike D’Antoni decided to stick with Danuel House (3/4/1/2 with one three-pointer in 25 minutes) as his fifth starter. But it was Gordon who was on the court in crunch time as the Rockets closed out the win and clinched the head-to-head tiebreaker. He’s worth a look for the 3-pointers, but staying healthy has always been the key for Gordon. Saturday, 9:08 pm
  • Kevin Huerter struggles with shot Saturday
    Kevin Huerter shot 1-of-11 from the field in Saturday’s win over the Mavericks, finishing with three points, three rebounds, six assists, four steals and one three-pointer in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Huerter had a rough night shooting the basketball, as he was 1-of-8 from three and missed all three of his two-point attempts. He managed to salvage something for those who have him rostered with the assists and steals, but otherwise this was a disappointing effort. Given how much he’s playing, Huerter is a solid option in most leagues even when he struggles to make shots as he did Saturday night. Saturday, 7:17 pm
  • Trae Young scored 13 4th quarter points
    Trae Young shot 10-of-21 from the field and 2-of-3 from the foul line in Saturday’s win over the Mavericks, scoring 25 points with six rebounds, 10 assists and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: Young did rack up five turnovers on the night, but the majority of those miscued occurred in the game’s first three quarters. In the fourth he was at his best, scoring 13 points as Atlanta outscored Dallas 34-21 in the final stanza. Young is a top-10 player in eight-cat this season, and thanks to his recent scoring run he’s managed to move into the first round in nine-cat as well. Having entered the game with an average of 30.1 points per game, Young could set a new record for highest second-year scoring average in NBA history. Shaquille O’Neal averaged 29.3 points per game during his second season (1993-94). Saturday, 7:07 pm
  • Eric Gordon (shin) will come off the bench
    Eric Gordon (left shin) will come off the bench against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: He said he was feeling a lot better after the break, but the Rockets did hold him out on Thursday against the Warriors. Gordon's return could cut into Danuel House and Ben McLemore a bit, and House lost a couple minutes to Jeff Green anyway. Gordon is only a low-end threes guy. Saturday, 4:33 pm
  • Kemba Walker (knee) out again Sunday vs. LAL
    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) will miss Sunday's game against the Lakers.

    Advice: Walker will miss his second straight game with lingering knee soreness. It's a bit concerning that he's missing more time after the All-Star break, but it's clear that the Celtics will take a cautious approach with their prized offseason acquisition. Marcus Smart will see an uptick in minutes, as will Brad Wanamaker and Romeo Langford. Saturday, 4:25 pm
  • Kyle Korver (back) to miss next three games
    Kyle Korver (back soreness) will not travel with the team for its upcoming three-game road trip.

    Advice: Korver had already been ruled out for Saturday's game against the 76ers, and he won't play of the three games that follow either. His absence frees up additional bench minutes for Pat Connaughton and Donte DiVincenzo, with the latter being the better short-term option in most leagues. Saturday, 4:19 pm
  • Anthony Davis (calf) probable for Sunday
    Coach Frank Vogel said Anthony Davis (bruised right calf) is probable to play against the Celtics on Sunday, but should be good to go.

    Advice: This is a day game for the Lakers, so there will not be a shootaround for an update. Although, AD would've been probable anyway, so nothing really changes here. Davis did say he was expecting to be sore and tight this morning, so this isn't the "normal" AD probable tag. Saturday, 1:10 pm
  • Eric Gordon (leg) questionable for Saturday
    Eric Gordon (left lower leg contusion) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. Utah.

    Advice: Gordon has missed each of the Rockets' previous three contests due to the contusion. If Gordon is ruled out again, Danuel House will remain in the starting lineup for Houston. This may end up being a game-time decision for Gordon. Saturday, 10:13 am
  • Canceled game rescheduled for April 9th
    The NBA announced on Friday that the Jan. 28th game between the Lakers and the Clippers, which was postponed, has been rescheduled for Thursday, April 9th.

    Advice: The Jan. 28 game was canceled due to the passing of Kobe Bryant. Three other games were rescheduled as part of this process. The Bulls at Clippers game originally scheduled for Wed., April 8 will be played on Mon., April 6 at 10 p.m. ET. The Warriors at Lakers game originally scheduled for Thu., April 9 will be played on Tue., April 7. The Bulls at Lakers game originally scheduled for Tue., April 7 will be played on Wed., April 8. The end result is that the Lakers will have to play three games in three nights. As a result, Anthony Davis will likely sit out at least one of those contests. Saturday, 6:30 am
  • Alex Caruso sneaky good in win vs. MEM
    Alex Caruso had a sneaky good night off the bench vs. the Grizzlies on Friday, scoring nine points on 3-of-5 shooting with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one triple in 23 minutes.

    Advice: He made his presence felt everywhere and will be on the highlight reel tonight with this putback dunk in the fourth (link below). Caruso had a really strong game before the break with 10 points, six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 22 minutes vs. Denver and continues to outplay Rajon Rondo, so maybe workloads like these will start to be the norm -- coach Frank Vogel said after the game that he wants to get Caruso more run next to LeBron James. He's trending up as a flier in deeper leagues. Friday, 10:23 pm
  • Anthony Davis (calf) dominant in win vs. MEM
    Anthony Davis played through a bruised right calf in a 117-105 win over the Grizzlies on Friday, scoring 28 points with 13 rebounds, four assists, one steal, seven blocks and two triples.

    Advice: He played just nine minutes in the first half after a quick trip to the locker room but his second half was nothing short of dominant. He racked up at least seven blocks for the 11th time in his career and made sure to thank the training staff for keeping his leg warm throughout the game. "I'm pretty sure it'll be tight and sore tomorrow," Davis said. We'll keep him on the injury report as a precaution for Sunday vs. the Celtics, but they were likely going to list him as probable regardless. Friday, 10:16 pm
  • Kyle Kuzma plays 23 minutes vs. Grizzlies
    Kyle Kuzma played 23 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Friday, hitting 4-of-13 shots for eight points, four rebounds and three assists.

    Advice: He's a slight loser in terms of fantasy value, as Markieff Morris is expected to sign with the Lakers once he clears waivers on Sunday. Morris is expected to log minutes as a backup four, but Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that Kuz may play some more SF to compensate for the potential dip in PF minutes. Kuzma wasn't even worth rostering in standard leagues before this so his fantasy owners should cut him if they haven't already. Friday, 10:05 pm
  • Kyle Korver (back soreness) out again
    Kyle Korver (back soreness) is out for Saturday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: He's been listed as out for two weeks now without a proper update, so we're marking him as out indefinitely. Pat Connaughton has been more involved with the second unit these days but Donte DiVincenzo is the only reserve in Milwaukee worth rostering. Friday, 5:34 pm
  • Ky Bowman scores eight in 28 minutes
    Ky Bowman scored eight points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 28 minutes against the Rockets on Thursday.

    Advice: Garbage time definitely helped, but it also helped the Warriors didn't bring back Jeremy Pargo. Perhaps Bowman can find minutes in the low 20s, but coach Steve Kerr seems to be committed to Jordan Poole. With Bowman and Poole getting overlap, feel free to stream Bowman in deeper leagues for the next one to see how it plays out. Thursday, 10:15 pm
  • Trae Young drops career-high 50 points in win
    Trae Young made 12-of-25 from the field and 18-of-19 from the line for a career-high 50 points during a thrilling 129-124 win over the Heat on Thursday, adding two rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and eight 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: His only miss from the line was on his last attempt after making his first 18. Young's monster scoring game boosted him to 30.1 points per game on the season to put him since in the league with only James Harden ahead of him. He could also join Russ Westbrook, Nate Archibald and Oscar Robertson as the only players to average 30-plus points with nine-plus dimes over a season. He's exceeded basically all expectations and he'll be coming off the board near the top five in drafts next season for majority of formats. Thursday, 8:24 pm
  • Kevin Huerter still getting huge minutes
    Kevin Huerter scored 17 points with seven rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

    Advice: The Hawks have most of their depth on the perimeter, but Huerter continues to see massive playing time. Over his last eight, Huerter averaged a whopping 39.0 minutes per game with 16.9 points, 3.5 boards, 4.1 dimes, 0.4 steals and 3.1 treys. He should have a great finish with coach Lloyd Pierce set to lean heavily on his core five. Thursday, 7:53 pm
  • Eric Gordon (shin) ruled out vs. Warriors
    Eric Gordon (left shin contusion) will not play against the Warriors on Thursday.

    Advice: This was expected after coach Mike D'Antoni said that Gordon was more likely to play on Saturday against the Jazz. Danuel House and Ben McLemore will soak up the minutes made available by Gordon's absence versus Golden State. Thursday, 6:05 pm
  • Kevin Huerter (allergies) playing vs. Miami
    Kevin Huerter (allergic reaction) will play vs. Miami on Thursday.

    Advice: Huerter was listed as 'probable' and should be locked into active fantasy lineups when the Hawks host the Heat tonight. His value has been anchored in 3-point shooting for the past month, with a trickle of boards and assists, but he could help his owners with a boost in defensive stats (0.6 steals and 0.5 blocks) and percentages (41.0% shooting). Thursday, 3:15 pm
  • Kemba Walker (sore left knee) out Friday
    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) will not play vs. the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: This is the same ailment that cost Walker time earlier in February. His minutes were limited for a few games when he returned on Feb. 7, but he played 46 minutes in a double-OT game just before the break, and logged 29 minutes in the All-Star game. Boston will take every precaution to avoid a long-term injury, and for now we'll consider him questionable to return vs. the Lakers on Sunday. "[Walker is out] just because of all the time that he’s been on the court," said coach Brad Stevens. "We’re just going to continue to be careful with that." In his absence, Brad Wanamaker and Romeo Langford should be busier than usual. Thursday, 1:34 pm
  • Eric Gordon (shin) unlikely to play Thursday
    Eric Gordon (left shin contusion) is unlikely to play in Thursday's game against the Warriors according to Mike D'Antoni.

    Advice: During a radio interview Thursday afternoon, D'Antoni said it was more likely that Gordon would play in Saturday's game against the Jazz. His absence would free up additional opportunities for Danuel House and Ben McLemore, who will play off of dominant ball-handlers James Harden and Russell Westbrook. Thursday, 11:49 am
  • Kevin Huerter (illness) probable Thursday
    Kevin Huerter (allergic reaction) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Heat.

    Advice: Huerter entered the All-Star break having played at a 10th-round level in nine-cat over a two-week stretch, slightly better than his production for the entire season (11th round) thus far. Since he's listed as probable there's a good chance that he'll be able to take on his usual workload, so he should be plugged into lineups in standard leagues. Thursday, 9:16 am
  • Robert Williams (left hip) out for road trip
    Robert Williams (left hip bone edema) won't play on the Celtics' upcoming four-game road trip.

    Advice: The good news is that Williams was active during Wednesday's practice and is expected to "ramp things up" throughout the week. "Rob did a pretty good job today," said coach Brad Stevens. It sounds like there's a chance he'll return Feb. 29 at home vs. Houston, but Boston is in no rush while Enes Kanter and Daniel Theis are healthy. Wednesday, 5:05 pm
  • Kemba Walker limited Wednesday as precaution
    Kemba Walker was limited during Wednesday's practice as a precaution.

    Advice: Walker played 29 minutes during the All-Star game, so he didn't get a full break, and the Celtics "intend to continue managing his body" as the regular season continues. That makes sense, given his recent knee issues, and fantasy owners will be thrilled if a few missed practices help keep him on the court for games. There's no reason to think he's in danger of missing Friday's game in Minnesota, so we'll leave him off the injury report. Wednesday, 4:54 pm
  • Kyle Korver will not play on Thursday
    Kyle Korver (back soreness) will not play on Thursday against the Pistons.

    Advice: He's only dealing with soreness, but the Bucks really don't need him with some major depth to the end of their bench. Donte DiVincenzo has been a pleasant surprise while Marvin Williams could play multiple positions. Wednesday, 2:42 pm
